Professor of Professional Practice

Job description

Job Summary: The Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK invites highly qualified candidates to apply for non-tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Professor of Professional Practice in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). (Other ranks may be considered depending on the candidate's level of experience.)
Candidates must have an earned doctorate (or equivalent) in electrical engineering (EE) or computer engineering (CpE) and have significant industrial and teaching experience. Candidates with a Master of Science degree in EE or CpE, and exceptional work experience will also be considered. Successful candidates will be expected to provide high quality capstone design instruction to prepare ECE students for competitive, entry-level engineering design positions and develop the capstone design curriculum to meet the ABET outcomes and objectives of the EE and CpE programs. The curriculum will stress team-based, project design and management for both EE and CpE students. The candidate will collect ABET assessment data and work closely with the ABET Assessment Coordinator. He/she will make professional observations and recommendations related to the performance, strengths, and shortcomings of ECE's graduating students, and will perform periodic assessment, evaluation and feedback of all student teams during the semester. He/she will oversee the ECE Design Commons and other ECE design labs, and will coordinate with ENDEAVOR and CEAT faculty on ECE interdisciplinary senior design projects. The candidate will reach out to industry to create industry sponsored designed projects. He/she will partner and participate with CEAT faculty to create a signature CEAT Design Expo with high ECE engagement. He/she will teach other ECEN courses and laboratories as needed by the program, actively participate on the ECE Laboratory Committee, provide laboratory GTA technical training and development for all ECE instructional labs, provide student training and certification to meet the outcomes and objectives of the EE and CpE programs, mentor student teams and clubs for national competitions and entrepreneurial activities, and participate in ECE advising and service activities. The successful candidate will be expected to learn and research innovative senior design pedagogy, curriculum, and methods, participate in conferences and workshops that focus on senior design pedagogy and best practices, and engage in on-going training that deals with effective instruction techniques.

The School currently has 21 full-time faculty members (including six Fellows of prestigious professional organizations), approximately 460 undergraduate students, and 65 graduate students. The School has many state-of-the-art teaching laboratories including the Design Commons, Circuits Laboratory and Optics Laboratory. The School also has access to all engineering laboratories in ENDEAVOR, the new CEAT undergraduate laboratory building. Of particular interest to ECE are the state-of-the-art RF/Communications Laboratory, Sensor Laboratory, and Mechatronics Laboratory.

The School offers the BS, MS, MEng, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and the B.S degree in Computer Engineering. The School's baccalaureate programs are ABET accredited. Research thrusts within the School include power and energy, computer engineering, digital and analog electronics, control systems, communications, electromagnetics, signal processing, and THz/optical systems.

Interested candidates should apply online at Review and screening of applications will commence as applications are received. The first day of employment is tentatively scheduled to begin before the end of the year.
